Got this from This is a great vegan alternative for frosting used for German Chocolate Cake! This got amazing reviews on! (This is enough for one 2-layer cake).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil together all ingredients in a medium to large saucepan over medium-high heat for 12 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden (or plastic) spoon.
  2. Pour then spread on cake while frosting is still warm.
  3. Let set up for a few minutes before serving (sets up faster if you cover it and place it in the fridge).

This was a very good substitute for German chocolate frosting. We have dairy allergies and this was exactly what I was looking for. I did not cook for full time listed, just eye balled it until it looked right, about 6 minutes for me. Also used raw sugar rather than white. THANKS for posting!

EXCELLENT! I didn't have any pecans, but it still turned out GREAT! It was my mom's b-day and I made a vegan yellow cake. This frosting worked well. My mom REALLY loved it.
